Marc Williams is a 3rd year PhD student at the Barts Cancer Institute and University College London. Originally trained in physics, he now applies mathematical modelling techniques to understand cancer through the lens of evolutionary biology. His work involves mathematical and computational modelling together with Bayesian inference techniques and analysis of large genomic datasets.

The amount of biological data being generated has exploded in the past 5 years, primarily due to the decreasing costs of high throughput sequencing. In particular tens of thousands of cancer genomes have been sequenced. Interpreting this data in a meaningful way however, is challenging. We...julia programming-languages open-source
